Why not Clinton Portis as an Eagle?

Yes I know the Eagles have Lesean McCoy. I love him just as all other Eagle fans do. He fought and played through injuries this year and for that he deserves a lot of credit, but I am not sold on the number two back the eagles have, and I don't think they are either.

Not bad and for a situational back, but isn't funny how the Browns trade him because of lack of production and all of asudden Peyton Hillis explodes onto the scene? We need a power runner and Clinton Portis is exactly that, a north type of runner. He was slowed by injuries but he and I both agree there is some power left in the tank. 

 

Leonard Weaver tore his ACL in the first game of the season and if anybody knows about knee injuries they are a trouble for RB. In fact the only running back I remember seeing come back 7 monthes after his injury and tearing it up was the Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers. I hope he does I love Weaver and his has a nose for the end zone but what if he isnt 100%?

 

Clinton Portis could get it done and has said before he would of loved to play for Philly.

After being caught wearing a Phillies hat. Here i what he had to say,

 

"I just felt like wearing red,"

 

So like Bob Sanders, if the Eagles can get him for cheap and he is ok with a back up role I'd say go after him hes only going to help us.
